“Be in harmony my friend” was created to help teenagers to understand, overcome and embrace their negative emotions and facilitate their personal growth.

This project is a result of the first “HARMONY Project: Train the Trainer” program, implemented in B&H in 2021.

Students from 2 high schools in Zenica, B&H, participated in 7 workshops, divided into 2 phases. The workshops were focused on application of different methods focusing on processing and embracing emotions to facilitate personal growth and build stronger connections and understanding with the people in their close circles.

The students from the first phase assisted the teacher and the participants from the second, practicing peer-to-peer sharing.

These shared experiences taught them to accept their emotions and enabled them to become adults capable of dealing with their thoughts and feelings without being overwhelmed. Finally, all students took a trip to Sarajevo, visiting local yoga studio and practicing mindfulness techniques.

The implementation of this project was supported by the Rotary International (Global Grant) and NGO SANCHILD.
